Weirdest guessing game

A simple and humorous game to get people talking about themselves.

Background

  • Preparation time: none
  • Play time: 1 minute group prep, 1-2 minutes per participant
  • Materials required: none
  • Minimum participants: 2
  • Maximum participants: no limit

Instructions

Instruct the group to take one minute to think of the weirdest thing they've done, and send this to the host in a private chat. After this prep time has passed, choose a random submission and read it out to the group. Have the group guess which person made the submission. Allow time for comments and laughs.

Everyone writes down the weirdest thing they've ever done. The statements are read out and people guess which person it is.

Follow-up discussion

Questions for discussion:

  • What was the weirdest thing anyone has done?
  • What is an example of something you learned about a team member?
